About Bill Crews

This property is owned by two very good friends that have been vacationing in A101 since its construction over 25 years ago. It is a home away from home for them and their families and hope that visitors will enjoy its beauty and location as much as they do.

Perfect beach get away

  • 5 of 5

A group of four retired teachers had a magnificent stay in Perdido Key at this lovely condo. The kitchen was well equipped and all the decorating and furnishings were updated. Comfortable and clean spaces throughout. There were lots of beach items available to use on the warm white sanded beach outside our door. Perfect location, very reasonable. Management of the property was also helpful and responsive to any requests we had.

My Kind of Place

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly as advertised and more! Everything in the reviews were true. This place has everything you would need for a beach trip. We usually load down our Honda Pilot and add a cargo carrier to our tow hitch for all the things we usually bring (beach chairs, umbrella, beach cart, toys, etc). This time we trusted the reviews and just came with our 3 boys, my mother-in-law, and some swimsuits. That's all we needed. The kitchen has any size pots, pans, and utensils you would need. Everything in the kitchen was clean. The fridge even had an ice and filtered water dispenser which was great to have. When we arrived, I was worried I would not be able to watch the Georgia football game since it was on the SEC Network. Luckily this place had cable tv with this channel in the line up. Didn't miss any football all week. The things we like/used the most were the Weber grill, ice maker, the beach wagon, chairs, and umbrella. Grilling with a beach view was great. There are also 2 park style charcoal grills right out front with a picnic table too. Both look like they were just installed recently. Having an ice maker will be one of my requirements when renting going forward. Not having to make ice runs everyday is nice (tho there is a Tom Thumb gas station right across the street if you need anything and dont want to go far). Bill Crews was great to deal with from the moment we submitted to rent. He was very responsive and easy to deal with. We will be back.

Our stay was perfect. weather was great.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just what we had thought. We were so blessed. Ground floor was a real treat. We especially liked that it is so close to everything that we wanted to do. It will definitely be somewhere we will want to rent again. Great vacation was had by all. We would give a special shout out for the presence of an ice maker. Real treat in hot weather.

Thank you. We had a wonderful time and the condo was great!!! We look forward to another visit there! The only thing I think you would want to know is that the front door keys /lock was very difficult to open. That may need to be checked! Thanks again for a great, beautiful vacation home!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here with my family and hated to leave! The condo is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and beds. A huge patio with table and chairs provide nice area to gather outside. Ground floor access to beach is a big plus. Beach towels, chairs and toys are available for your use as well. Can't wait to return on our next trip to Perdido Key.
